I shower every day, I feel gross if I don't. But I do admit there have been days where I haven't due to just not being able to whilst looking after a baby and toddler and then being too scared to turn on the taps to shower when baby goes to bed as he wakes easily with the noisy pipes in our walls!!
Also when we travelled in our camper through France in mid winter... EVERYWHERE was closed, all beach toilet blocks were locked plus it was freezing. I think dh and I went a week with no shower and it was horrendous! It wasn't by choice. Dh is a surfer so he had a surf so he was clean, and I ended up having a swim in the freezing ocean just to clean myself a bit. Lol
I shower every day, sometimes twice. DF is twice a day and the kids are a bath or shower every night.
I wash and blow dry my hair every second day.
I shower every 2nd day. My chronic dry skin cant handle it if i shower everyday & thats on the advice of my dermatologist.
I do however wash my face each day & use deodorant in the morning & evening.
I always shower in the morning before work to wake me up. Will sometimes also shower when i get home from work and then again at night time before bed. On the weekends, i only shower at night unless i am going out which i will then have a shower.
I shower sometimes three times a day. I'm a bit OCD about it. 😳 nothing else though the house can be festy haha!
I shower twice a daybut only wash my hair twice a week. I put on fresh underwear after each shower and have new pjs every single night but am happy to wear the same clothes 5 days in a row so long as they don't look dirty. With 2 little boys I don't see the point of new clothes each day but I have to have clean pjs/underwear after my night shower otherwise I think the bed might smell!
I shower every day without fail. I wash my hair every 2nd or third day. I exercise almost daily, and am BF so still sweaty hormonal, I will only BF DD after exercise when I've showered. Out of all 4 children we have, I have always made time to shower. It helps my mental health to be clean and fresh.
The only day I miss a shower is a day I am hospitalised having major surgery as per last weekend. I love the hot water on my skin. It's unhygienic not to wash yourself daily and I can't think of many valid reasons not to in a first world country. Diseases like trachoma still exist in Australia only in locations where personal hygiene is poor and water supply not clean and plentiful. Must admit to only washing my hair a few times a week because it does not get oily.

I skip days here and there if I've just been at home but won't leave to go out the next day until I've had one. Often have days I don't get out of pjs. I wash my hair approx once a week because fuzzy curls just aren't cool. My car hasn't been washed in a year at least.
